In the book of Lamentations, Chapter 1 and verse 12 we read these poignant words prophetically spoken in reference to the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary. “Is it nothing to you which pass by?” What a pitiful cry from the suffering Saviour! There is almost a sense of disbelief in the question. How could anyone possibly pass by and not be affected by the scene before them? Yet, sadly, in its fulfillment, that is exactly what men and women did. But what about today? Have you been passing by the cross so far in your experience? If so, it’s high time you stopped and considered what happened there.
Who could ever plumb the depths of the words and thoughts of God Almighty? Yet, God has presented His Word to us in such a way that we are able to understand the simple truths necessary to be right with Him. For example, in the book of Psalms He has placed several markers (by using the term ‘selah’) to help us realize that we should stop and think over what we have just read. Yes, God doesn’t want us to miss some important truths. Today’s message looks at some places in scripture where these ‘full stops’ occur and how it applies to us as readers today.
If you read the book of Genesis, it’s not long before you come across the account of Noah’s flood. Mankind had lived and multiplied upon the earth for many years, and it seems that their depth of wickedness and depravity only became worse and worse. There was great violence on the earth and men seemed to do whatever pleased them taking no thought of the righteousness of God. What an awful place it must have been - something similar to our world today. But it’s an amazing fact that Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. And grace is exactly what we need as well! The gospel brings us this good news of how this could happen – to you!
In the gospel of Matthew Chapter 18 and verse 3, the Lord Jesus Christ says, "Verily, I say unto you, except ye be converted and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven." Does this sound like a very strange statement to you? What did Christ mean? Well, it is certainly very important for us to know what it means because He is presenting us with an imperative that will decide whether or not we can go to heaven! He gives a very specific qualification - we need to become like little children in order to go to heaven. How can this be?
This message will be looking at a beautiful verse in 1 Peter 3:18 which says this: "For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit." Here is the entire gospel message in one verse! And what a wonderful source of hope it is to an individual, maybe somebody like you, who is longing to have forgiveness of sins and peace with God.
